Steilacoom (Wash.) safety Fotu Leiato received a new Pac-12 offer on Friday when Oregon offered Leiato.

On Thursday, defensive coordinator Don Pellum visited the school to check in on Leiato.

They have been recruiting Fotu for the last month or so, but they wanted to meet him in person before extending an offer," said Steilacoom assistant coach William Garrow. "He’s obviously very excited about the offer from Oregon, and he plans to visit there on the final weekend now."

This weekend, Leiato will visit Washington State, who had an in-home with him on Thursday.

Next week, Michigan State, San Diego State, Wyoming and Oregon will have in-home visits with Leaito.

With Leiato scheduling his official visit to Oregon for the final weekend, his visit to UCLA, originally scheduled for that last weekend, is not in the picture as of now.

"He'll have a possible official visit the 23rd but it's not been determined where, or if, he is going anywhere yet," said Leiato.

That Sunday night, Washington State head coach Mike Leach and a host of assistants will be back in his home.
